I am in the middle of creating some sort of working student contract. I beleive working students are part of my training & business TEAM and want them to know how serious their position is and that it is a job not just a way to work off a lessons. I've had a few problems in the past and hoping that this will help make it clear what expectations are, how to do the job duties, etc. It will be paired with a binder for weekly duties and who is doing what so there is no discrepancy among my students, etc.
I'm planning on including a few other things, like a non-disclosure agreement, especially with client matter. I don't need things getting out of the barn and to other trainers, etc that just cause drama (I try to create a drama free environment!). And also since I am in a shared location, to add that they won't be allowed to work at another stable on site as a student for at least 6 months after ending work with me. Does that sound fair? I have had a problem with another trainer bribing my working students when I am not there.
What are your general thoughts? Anything I should add, or take away?
